Five Tips on How to Choose Your Roofer
Do you own a business, a factory or a residence and are looking for a reputable roofer to repair or replace your roof? In this article you will find five expert tips that will guide you in your steps. Enjoy!
1. An Experienced Roofer Has Been in Business for Many Years
It can be tempting to give a chance to a novice entrepreneur who offers his services at a low price. That said, when it is an investment of several thousand dollars, it is better to opt for a company that has been in operation for many years. At Couvreurs-DM, we have installed and repaired thousands of roofs since we started out ... more than 20 years ago!
2. A Credible Roofer has a License from the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec
Even if a contractor in your area has a nice truck with great graphics and a website, he is not automatically authorized to perform work that meets the standards required by the RBQ ... Ask any potential contractor for his 10-digit number and check to see that it is listed in the Register of licence holders. At Couvreurs-DM, our code is 8224-2181-59.
3. An Honest Roofer Agrees to Be Paid upon Completion of the Work
A roofer who is unable to advance the sums required for the purchase of materials or who requires payment before the end of the contract is suspect to say the least. Go to the next candidate! At Couvreurs-DM, we inspect the completed work with our clients before being paid ... it's a matter of principle!
4. A Reliable Roofer Uses Equipment and Materials of Excellent Quality
A roofer concerned with the satisfaction of his customers will only use materials known for their durability. As you can imagine, at Couvreurs-DM, we only source from recognized manufacturers. During our work, we use a crane to avoid dirt – a cleaner solution that sets us apart from the competition! Finally, we were accredited for IKO products in 2005 and for Soprema products in 2002.
5. A Professional Roofer Verifies the Attic Structure
You can have the best roofing but if it is installed over an attic that is damaged or poorly ventilated, you’ve just thrown your money out the window! Look for a contractor who ensures the quality of the attic to prevent premature wear of your investment. At Couvreurs-DM, we rigorously check the structure of the attic (sealing, ventilation, insulation) before installing the sheets or membranes. If necessary, our carpentry team can repair the structure, making sure no water will run in off the roof.
At Couvreurs-DM, we offer a range of guaranteed services at competitive prices, including the installation and replacement of roofs (sloped roofs or flat roofs) in Montreal, Laval and the surrounding areas. Contact us!
